The New York Times has endorsed President Obama’s re-election and the paper is doing its best to help out any way it can. The latest move just reinforced the fact that the Times is so institutionally Democratic that it hasn’t endorsed a GOP presidential candidate during Obama’s lifetime.
That support plays out in the paper itself. New York Times Editorial Page Editor Andrew Rosenthal's Sunday Review was wall-to-wall for Obama this past week, with two left-wing op-eds on Obama on the front page, a full-page endorsement of Obama for re-election, and three liberal columnists simultaneously obsessed with abortion, including the paper's foreign policy columnist Thomas Friedman. (Right-of-center Ross Douthat also covered women's issues, but questioned Obama's "weirdly paternalistic form of social liberalism.")

As I was preparing to head to Tulsa yesterday I choked back my gag reflex and listened to a bit to Obama speaking at the Red Cross Headquarters. (He was there, I guess, because New York City Mayor Bloomberg told him not to come bother him while he was trying to deal with his own mess.)
Obama was really trying to look presidential. He was standing there before the cameras – at the Red Cross, not at a government relief office – telling the government that he would tolerate no red tape, no bureaucracy, and no excuses. The government MUST get the resources where they’re needed … NOW. All I could think of when I heard this pompous and arrogant failure blowing smoke about the tremendous federal response was … “Hey, Obama. Why didn’t you work as hard to get resources moving to rescue Ambassador Chris Stevens and those three brave men who tried to save his life as you are trying to rescue your hideously failed presidency?”
The man disgusts me.
